Just a good ol’ beer, made with grains, yeast and hops. Beats all you ever drank, been a double IPA since the day it was born.

22oz bottle 9/20/16 (Caputo’s Singles Rack)-42° in shaker-Pours a hazy golden with floaties. Aroma of malt, hops, and sweetness. Taste of the same with some more malt and slight alcohol. This full bodied brew is not bad but was expecting more.

Braudog (6341) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUL 16, 2016
Bottle. Bright orange color with a thin but firm white top. This drinks with a certain undercover funk that I can’t quite describe, but essentially defines this beer. There are aspects of chewy citrus, but the wet-woody-mush current (which sounds worse than I mean), while subtle, still ends up the dominate note. (#6235, 7/16/2016)

stantheman (900) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 7, 2016
From a 650 ml bomber. A lighter orange amber in color, with a moderate white head and faintly sweet and fruity nose. Pleasantly fruity, slightly malted and hopped, but unremarkable. 3.5

2015 parallel 49 central city advent calendar. Pours yellow, foamy head. Fruity malty straw, the usual. Taste is similar. Low carbonation. It?s OK.

650mL capped bottle, a gift from fiulijn. Apparently he is giving these out to every lucky girl at the dance :). I wasn’t having high expectations for this beer. First, no idea of age. Second, an Imperial IPA from Canada, well call me skeptical. When cold this seems to hit the spot. Strong hops, moderate bitterness, no off flavors. Passes the "I didn’t try test’ but the true test of a beer is letting it warm up. Temperature decreases bring out a much sweeter sugary aspect. Not offending and not caramel - thank goodness - but sweet. Hops sort of generic but felt. Not particularly bitter, again the sweetness covers up a lot. I see this as just an American Strong Ale, its actually not bitter or hoppy enough. I can drink it again and it exceeded my expectations.

650ml, thanks to fiulijn for the gift. Slight hazy white gold, creamy white head. Spice-tinged hop, a rich, astringent wit beer with some more dense hops. An odd mashup for me, but hits with plenty of wheat-wot character. Finishes quite dry, with balanced pine-citrus. Very tasty, a bit spicy.

Reeko (50) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 19, 2015
Pours a hazy golden colour with a very thin white head. Aroma of citrus/orange. Taste is hoppy and bitter with hints of orange and maybe grapefruit. Medium carbonation with a warm boozy finish. Not bad

wlajwl (5776) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - DEC 10, 2015
Aroma is wheat, grains/malts and citrus/tea. The flavor is citrus/fruit, tobacco, mild grapes, wheat/malts, hops and a mix of tart, slight bitterness and heat in the finish.

Rating #1362 7.12.2014 341mL Bottle from the CC/P49 Mystery Box. Faintly hazy amber/golden pour with a bubbly white foam, spotty lacing. Nose is orange peel, lemony hops. Mouthfeel crisp, medium alcohol warmth, medium carbonation. Decent bitterness, just a great Canadian IIPA.
